Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has clarified its stance on the Supreme Court judgment on the crisis over the national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), saying it cannot succumb to blackmail by amorphous groups.

INEC said it viewed the circulation of posters and statements purportedly accusing it of refusal to obey the judgement of the Supreme Court recognising one Chief Edozie Njoku as the authentic national chairman of APGA as cheap blackmail.

In a statement yesterday in Abuja signed by the national commissioner and chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, INEC said the group’s statement aimed at hoodwinking those not abreast of the details of the case.

We wish to state that the issues in question are about facts, the law, and due process not amenable to hysteria and appeal to sentiments.

For monetary policies to get the economy back on track, they must be supported with the non-oil sector, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele said yesterday.

The CBN boss spoke at the third Bi-Annual Non-Oil Export Summit in Lagos with theme: “RT200: Challenges and Prospects to Success”.

Emefiele said that in the case of Nigeria, developing the non-oil export sector is absolutely an imperative, given that this holds vast potential for generating foreign exchange earnings.

Admitting that the challenges facing Nigeria are many and evolving, the CBN governor threatened to sanction shipping companies exporting cargoes without proper documentation.
